Oatmeal Banana Bread Waffle (*vegan*)

The great thing about this waffle is that it isn’t good in spite of being vegan. It’s good because it’s vegan! I’ve found that recently, a lot of the waffles that I make with eggs tend to get really hard in the waffle iron before they’ve even fully cooked. Meaning that by the time a…

Toasted Coconut Banana Truffles

Girl Scout cookies are my absolute weakness. Samoas especially. There’s never been a better marriage made than that between toasted caramel and chocolate. And samoas boast both flavors, with the addition of a crunchy cookie and caramel sweetness. They almost make the 140 calories per serving worth it. Almost. Because I know that when it…

Whole Grain Banana Bread Donuts

Fluffy Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

How do you stay active during the summer? Now, I know what you’re thinking: it’s summertime, what do you mean “stay active”?

A little bit…

Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter Glaze

One of my best friends is obsessed with bananas. Banana pancakes, banana gelato, banana milkshakes- she loves them all. In fact, I won’t be surprised if the cake at her wedding is banana flavored. Unfortunately, said best friend is in Italy right now on vacation– where she discovered, might I add, that banana gelato is…
